A document released by the U.S. Army details preparations for “full scale riots” within the United States during which troops may be forced to engage in a “lethal response” to deal with unruly crowds of demonstrators.
The appearance of the document amidst growing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, with the National Guard now being called in to deal with the disorder, is an ominous coincidence.
The document makes it clear that the techniques detailed therein are to be applied both outside and inside the “continental United States (CONUS)” in the event of “unruly and violent crowds” where it is “necessary to quell riots and restore public order.”
The training manual outlines scenarios under which, “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots.”
The most shocking aspect of the document is the fact that it describes the deployment of a “lethal response” directed against “unarmed civilians,” including “sniper response” and “small arms direct fire.”
Under the heading “sniper response,” the document states, “Ensure that target leaders or troublemakers are targeted,” in addition to a passage which states, “Exploit the psychological effect of an attack.” …
Another graphic which depicts “escalation of trauma” directs soldiers how to use “riot batons” in order to cause the necessary level of injury or death to the subject. “Deadly force final target areas” include the back of the neck, the solar plexus, the neck, the spine and the head. …
Why would they be preparing for mass civil unrest? Because the banksters who think they own everything and everyone are busy creating the conditions for it. They have planned for the second Great Ripoff very long and very well. Except this time they won’t be seen as saviors, but as perpetrators. This is why brzezinski raised the issue of killing vs controlling a million people in his chatham house speech. There’s still a lot of ignorance out there, but they’ve lost control of public opinion, so they’re going to have to kill a lot of people to stay in power.
The US air war in Iraq has moved into its second week, and they are continuing to announce new, broader war goals virtually every today, with the White House today announcing a new notification was sent to Congress.
President Obama informed Congress that the latest war goal, the Kurdish capture of Mosul Dam, would require US airstrikes to support it, and claimed the loss of the dam would be a threat to the US Embassy in Baghdad.
Obama initially made the war just about protecting US troops in Irbil, then expanded it to Baghdad as well, then broadened it further to denying ISIS territory, and is now focusing on the Mosul Dam. …
With the National Guard now being sent to Ferguson, Missouri as the unrest extends into a second week, questions are being asked as to whether provocateurs are being used by authorities to stage violence in order to justify the militarized police crackdown.
Trouble flared once again last night as demonstrators threw molotov cocktails at police officers while cops deployed tear gas and rubber bullets before the midnight curfew even came into effect. Numerous reporters said they were threatened with violence and arrest by cops if they didn’t leave the area.
Despite the fact that some of the violence and looting is obviously being carried out by criminal opportunists and frustrated locals, many are beginning to question whether agent provocateurs are being used to demonize peaceful protesters and create a justification for heavy-handed police tactics.
Corporal Justin Wheetley of the Missouri State Highway Patrol last night blamed “outsiders” for the mayhem, with KMOV reporting that the trouble was, “stirred up by influences from outside of Ferguson.”
Radio host Dave Hodges also claims to have spoken to a source from within the Department of Homeland Security who told him that violent rioting and looting, “was encouraged and exacerbated by undercover DHS agents posing as members of the Black Panthers.”
“In the past five days I have been contacted, via one of my most trusted sources, a member of DHS, who is opposed to the events and DHS involvement in Ferguson, Missouri. This source stated that DHS is running the Ferguson Police Department and that their actions are designed to antagonize and to provoke the locals to violence. He further stated that he believed that the ultimate goal is to inflame the local citizens to such a point martial law will be declared,” writes Hodges.
Indeed, video footage of a member of the New Black Panthers leading a chant which calls for the death of Darren Wilson, the officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown, confirms that individuals from the militant group are intent on radicalizing the demonstrators.
Members of the New Black Panthers have been caught working undercover for the federal government in the past, with the most recent example being Richard Aoki, who was outed as an FBI informant in 2012.
A key question surrounding the police response to the unrest has been why law enforcement officers were ordered to stand down during looting on Friday night. During the first night of looting on Sunday last week, cops were also completely AWOL.
Whereas militarized police have been out in force to intimidate and target peaceful demonstrators and members of the press, they have failed to respond to the very same looting that has been used as a justification for their crackdown.
“Why did the police in Ferguson refuse to do their jobs?” asks Michael Snyder. “Who told them to stand down? Someone in the mainstream media needs to start asking some of these hard questions.” …
The presence of provocateurs during riots and unrest is by no means a new phenomenon.
Following the SPP protests in Canada back in 2007, Quebec provincial authorities were forced to admit that three rock-wielding black mask-wearing “anarchists” were in fact police infiltrators used to gather information on protesters.
During the G20 Summit in Pittsburgh in 2009, police also dressed up as anarchists in an attempt to infiltrate protesters.
Alex Jones’ film Police State 2: The Takeover also exposed how the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated and provocateured by the authorities during the violent 1999 WTO protests in Seattle.
Numerous observers of the unfolding situation in Ferguson are also starting to ask hard questions about whether provocateurs are responsible for at least some of the violence. …
Any government capable of inflicting radical muslim fundamentalism on the middle east and staging 9/11 for empire games is capable of using the same tactics for domestic political purposes. But in fact there’s no need to speculate. The history of the FBI’s cointelpro program in the 60′s and 70′s is a matter of public record. Not to mention the fabulously lucrative “drug war” where the feds play on both sides of the fence. And implanting the white house with the first “black” president presents special opportunities for domestic psyops.
The US has pledged assistance for victims of and even possible “airstrikes” against terrorists who have surrounded and threaten to eradicate thousands of religious minorities in Iraq. However, the terrorists themselves are a product of US foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa, and instrumental in achieving Western objectives across the region. Punitive strikes and aid to the victims of what is essentially a Western mercenary army is part of maintaining plausible deniability.
The terror hordes originated from NATO territory and have inundated Syria, Iraq, and now Lebanon. The goal of this well funded, heavily armed, professionally organized mercenary force is clearly to supplant pro-Iranian political and military fronts across Tehran’s arc of influence – from Baghdad to Damascus, to Lebanon and Hezbollah along the Mediterranean. In the process, the heavily indoctrinated rank and file have committed horrific atrocities ranging from rape and torture to mass executions and sectarian genocide. While such war crimes have been taking place in Syria since 2011, it is becoming increasingly difficult to cover up similar crimes beyond Syria’s borders under narratives of “civil war” linked to the so-called “Arab Spring.”
Instead, various stories have been used by the West to explain the appearance of ISIS in Iraq, the unprecedented scale of its operations, its convoys of matching vehicles and now military trucks, artillery, and even tanks. While the world is meant to believe ISIS spontaneously rose from the desert and “stole” billions in cash, weapons, and gear, a much simpler and documented explanation exists – Western state sponsorship – and state sponsorship that continues even as the West denounces the monsters of their own creation.
Beginning in 2011 – and actually even as early as 2007 – the United States has been arming, funding, and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and a myriad of armed terrorist organizations to overthrow the government of Syria, fight Hezbollah in Lebanon, and undermine the power and influence of Iran, which of course includes any other government or group in the MENA region friendly toward Tehran.
Billions in cash have been funneled into the hands of terrorist groups including Al Nusra, Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), and what is now being called “Islamic State in Iraq and Syria” or ISIS. One can see clearly by any map of ISIS held territory that it butts up directly against Turkey’s borders with defined corridors ISIS uses to invade southward – this is because it is precisely from NATO territory this terrorist scourge originated.
ISIS was harbored on NATO territory, armed and funded by US CIA agents with cash and weapons brought in from the Saudis, Qataris, and NATO members themselves. The “non-lethal aid” the US and British sent including the vehicles we now see ISIS driving around in.
They didn’t “take” this gear from “moderates.” There were never any moderates to begin with. The deadly sectarian genocide we now see unfolding was long ago predicted by those in the Pentagon – current and former officials – interviewed in 2007 by Pulitzer Prize-winning veteran journalist Seymour Hersh.
Hersh’s 9-page 2007 report, “The Redirection” states explicitly:
To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.
“Extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam” and are “sympathetic to Al Qaeda” – is a verbatim definition of what ISIS is today. Clearly the words of Hersh were as prophetic as they were factually informed, grounded in the reality of a regional conflict already engineered and taking shape as early as 2007. Hersh’s report would also forewarn the sectarian nature of the coming conflict, and in particular mention the region’s Christians who were admittedly being protected by Hezbollah. …
What else could you call it but satanism/statanism? Islamic fundamentalism is the swiss army knife of the anglo-american luciferian theocracy. Or do you think all this modern military equipment and the USA’s seeming impotence is just an indication of allah’s support for the cause? Then it’s just a coincidence that the head of ISIS is a graduate of a US detention/brainwashing center.

My colleague, Bill Black, has been entertaining himself by reading through the transcripts of the Fed’s meetings to find discussions of mortgage fraud. As you probably know, Congressman Henry Gonzalez forced the Fed to release these transcripts after he caught Chairman Greenspan in a white lie. Well, maybe it was not so white—just an outright lie trying to claim that transcripts of Fed meetings did not exist. We now know they did. Greenspan then agreed to release them, with a five year lag. So, joy of joys, you can now read the transcripts from FOMC meetings for 2006, right at the end of the biggest real estate boom in human history. And Bill Black is just the sort of guy who would find this fun.
I did the same thing for the period surrounding 1993-94 (back when Greenspan was caught in making those untruthful statements to Congress—never a good idea since Congress can throw the liar in prison). It is actually more fun than you might think. Go read the transcripts from the secret conference phone call when the Maestro informed his fellow FOMC members not only that he had misled Congress, but also that every word they had ever uttered at his FOMC meetings had been taped, as in Watergate secret taping. The gasps are still audible after all these years. But forget all that, let us turn to mortgage fraud in the 2000s.
Many of those involved in promoting the fraud have claimed that “no one could have seen it coming”—meaning the collapse. This is, of course, implausible. The FBI had warned of “an epidemic of fraud” back in 2004—long before the worst abuses became normal bank practice. And from the Fed’s transcripts, there is no doubt at all that the Fed “saw it coming”. Let’s look at a particular report from December 12, 2006. Don’t take my word for it. Read this: http://www.federalreserve.gov/monetarypolicy/files/FOMC20061212meeting.pdf …
There is no doubt at all that the Fed knew fraud was rampant and rising. There is no doubt at all that the Fed knew underwriting standards had collapsed. The Fed knew delinquencies had risen and would continue to rise. And they knew banks were reducing loan loss reserves—in order to book fake profits and to pay bonuses to top management.
And what did the Fed do about all this? The Fed sent representatives all around the country to argue that fundamentals were sound, that real estate markets had bottomed, and that the future looked bright ahead.
Did the Fed at any time ever tighten up mortgage lending standards? No. Did it ever publicly warn of a real estate bubble? No—only privately. Did it ever worry in public that we were set for the biggest real estate crash the US had ever seen? Of course not. That would have been counter-agenda.
At the time we could not get the transcripts—since they are released with a five year lag. So all we got was cheerleading for fraud by Fed officials.
Why? Because the Fed had become the government’s main tool for pumping bubbles. There was nothing else up the sleeve; it was all there was so far as a government strategy for growth. It was the tried and true method developed under President Clinton. And it worked. Until it didn’t. And won’t any more.
Unfortunately, neither President Obama nor the likely Republican candidate, ex-governor Romney have anything up their sleeves, either.
And the US economy will not recover until housing recovers. And housing will not recover until the Banksters are shut down. Because they’ve got all the dogs in the hunt—they cannot recognize the real estate losses because their exposure is too big.
It’s the biggest Catch 22 the world has ever seen. The big banks must be resolved—shut down—to relieve the pressure on homeowners, but that cannot happen because the big banks are too big to be shut down.
Dodd-Frank changed none of that. Indeed, it strives to keep the frauds running.
I think the author has politics and finance reversed. The “fed” was not an instrument of government policy. The government and the “fed” are both instruments of the robber barons, and the robber barons wanted to blow the real estate bubble, contaminate the bond market with the resulting fraudulent mortgage instruments, and then pop it to maximum effect. You can draw your own conclusions as to why, but there’s no question it was deliberate and well orchestrated across multiple governmental, banking, corporate and legislative domains. Here’s a smoking gun to that effect: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/13/AR2008021302783.html
When you control the money supply and interest rates, blowing and popping bubbles becomes a very important instrument of theft and social control. This is what you get with a privately controlled central bank.
Russia is consistently portrayed in the Western media as the “aggressor” amid the ongoing Ukrainian conflict, however, it is clear through overt moves by NATO’s proxy regime in Kiev, that attemptsare being made to intentionally provoke, not defend against Moscow’s ire.
The New York Times, in a recent article admits that the military campaign Kiev is carrying out against its own citizens in eastern Ukraine is overt brutality carried out by literal flag-waving Nazis, with the all but stated goal of provoking a Russian invasion.
The New York Times in an article titled, “Ukraine Strategy Bets on Restraint by Russia,” states:
Buoyed by successes against the separatists over the past two months — and noting that the Russians have threatened an invasion in the region before without following through — Ukrainian commanders have pressed ahead with an offensive to drive the rebels from their stronghold in Donetsk in the east.
The army continued to fire artillery into the city nightly, and paramilitary groups raided outlying villages despite warnings from President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia that he could intervene at any time to protect Ukrainians who favor closer ties with his country. And the Ukrainians have flaunted their victories.
Shelling populated centers and raiding villages far from its tenuous base of support, does not appear to be Kiev “defending itself,” nor in line with the “international norms” frequently cited by Washington, London, and Brussels when justifying “humanitarian interventions” elsewhere throughout the world. The NYT also notes that Russia “threatened” to intervene amid Kiev’s brutality, but never did – calling into question the notion that Russia is being “aggressive.”
The NYT continues, with what appears to be language designed to provoke Russia into crossing its border with Ukraine to intervene:
But Western leaders and analysts remain unconvinced Mr. Putin will be willing to be taunted endlessly or to permit extensive deaths of pro-Russian civilians. The United Nations said recently that at least 1,543 civilians and combatants on both sides have died since mid-April.
And in this statement, the NYT admits that indeed the Banderite Nazis NATO is aiding, funding, and soon to be training and arming , are carrying out a campaign of brutality causing “extensive deaths of pro-Russian civilians.”
Nazis and Western Complicity
The NYT also explicitly admits that Nazis line the ranks of the “militias” fighting for NATO’s regime in Kiev, and carrying out this campaign of provocation:
Officials in Kiev say the militias and the army coordinate their actions, but the militias, which count about 7,000 fighters, are angry and, at times, uncontrollable. One known as Azov, which took over the village of Marinka, flies a neo-Nazi symbol resembling a Swastika as its flag.
While the NYT attempts to cast as an ambiguous light as possible upon the connections Azov has with Nazism, the Azov Battalion does not simply fly a “neo-Nazi symbol resembling a Swastika as its flag.” The symbol is in fact the Wolfsangel used by Adolf Hitler’s various SS military divisions during World War II and is as good as saluting Hitler himself to affirm allegiance to his toxic ideology and to celebrate the Nazis’ numerous, notorious atrocities.
The BBC would elaborate on the nature of militias like “Azov,” who are undoubtedly the recipients of US, British, and other NATO member states’ aid, cash, and political support, in its article, “Ukraine conflict: ‘White power’ warrior from Sweden.” In it, it profiles a member of Azov Battalion, Mikael Skillt, and states:
“I have at least three purposes in the Azov Battalion: I am a commander of a small reconnaissance unit, I am also a sniper, and sometimes I work as a special coordinator for clearing houses and going into civilian areas.”
As to his political views, Mr Skillt prefers to call himself a nationalist, but in fact his views are typical of a neo-Nazi.
Dismissed by the West as “Russian propaganda,” it is clear that even the most “Western” media outlets cannot report on the Ukrainian conflict without coming across literal Nazis fighting for Kiev and operating in “civilian areas” in eastern Ukraine. The BBC would admit the Azov Battalion is far from a fringe group and was raised by the Ukrainian Interior Ministry itself. When NATO members announce “aid” to the regime in Kiev, they are also, by default, announcing aid to literal Neo-Nazi militant groups raised by Kiev’s Interior Ministry, like the Azov Battalion.
Using Humanitarian Concerns to Provoke War
It was in 2011 that the US, UK, NATO, and its regional partners carried out a coordinated propaganda campaign including the fabrication of atrocities to justify the military invasion of Libya and Syria. It would later turn out that the “civilians” the Libyan and Syrian governments were fighting were in fact heavily armed terrorists hailing from Al Qaeda. The deceit in Libya unraveled but not before NATO began military operations in support of these terrorists. In Syria, the deception was exposed and attempts by the West to intervene directly have thus far failed.
Conversely, in Ukraine, the West is backing literal Nazis who are admittedly mass murdering civilians in eastern Ukraine, in an attempt to intentionally provoke Russia into war.
On one hand, humanitarian catastrophes are fabricated by the West to justify its own military interventions, while on the other, real humanitarian catastrophes are created to provoke military action from the West’s enemies. …
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar & Turkey all back terror group
President Barack Obama’s authorization of air strikes on ISIS targets in Iraq serves as an opportunity to remind ourselves which countries are bankrolling the deadly terror group.
The answer; Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey and Qatar – three of the United States’ biggest allies in the region.
Last night Obama announced limited air strikes to slow the advance of ISIS fighters and help members of the Yazidi religious minority group who were forced to flee into a mountainous region in the north of Iraq to avoid slaughter.
However, the administration has failed to put pressure on several Gulf states that are directly responsible for helping ISIS gain a foothold in Iraq in the first place.
As the Daily Beast’s Josh Rogin documents, “The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), now threatening Baghdad, was funded for years by wealthy donors in Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, three U.S. allies that have dual agendas in the war on terror.”
In addition to funding itself through criminal activity and punitive taxes imposed on the local population on pain of death, ISIS relies on a steady stream of income from countries that have bankrolled extremist Islamists for years yet have faced zero backlash from successive White House administrations. Even evidence of direct Saudi involvement in 9/11 failed to generate any reconsideration of who America calls its friends.
“Everybody knows the money is going through Kuwait and that it’s coming from the Arab Gulf,” said Andrew Tabler, senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “Kuwait’s banking system and its money changers have long been a huge problem because they are a major conduit for money to extremist groups in Syria and now Iraq.”
State backing for ISIS, now the wealthiest terror group in the world, prompted Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to point the finger directly at Saudi Arabia and Qatar during a France 24 television interview. “I accuse them of inciting and encouraging the terrorist movements. I accuse them of supporting them politically and in the media, of supporting them with money and by buying weapons for them,” said al-Maliki.
In failing to call these countries to account for funding ISIS, the White House has deliberately placed the importance of isolating Iran and Syria over and above the stability of the entire region.
The White House is also directly responsible for the spread of ISIS militants having backed other rebel groups in Syria which were once allied with and then taken over by ISIS.
Indeed, some evidence suggests that the U.S. even trained some of the Islamists who went on to join ISIS at a secret base in Jordan in 2012.
Aaron Klein was told by Jordanian officials that, “dozens of future ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.”
Yet another U.S. ally – Turkey – also trained ISIS fighters at a location in the vicinity of Incirlik Air Base near Adana.
According to a Shiite source close to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the Obama administration turned a blind eye to the fact that Turkey was equipping and then sending fighters to Syria before they went on to Iraq. The source even went on to accuse the White House of being “an accomplice” in the ISIS takeover of major Iraqi cities.
Whether or not the “humanitarian” air strikes on Iraq are really aimed at stopping the terror wrought by ISIS, or are merely part of a ploy to create a justification for a long-awaited attack on Syria, the White House itself, as well as some of America’s closest supposed allies, all share some of the blame in aiding the growth of ISIS in the region.
The stakes couldn’t be higher. The continued alliance between NATO, israel and saudi arabia against iran is essential to the long term survival of the petrodollar system.
